A FRIEND AT COURT
Q. What is a tennis official?
A. A person who helps ensure that any given tennis match is
conducted under the fairest possible conditions. So, ideally,
the official is “a friend at court,” helpful to the players and
Q. Why should I be a tennis official?
A. Because you: 1) love the game; 2) therefore have a keen
interest in seeing that it is played under the best conditions
) enjoy having first-hand contact with it whereby you can
make a useful contribution to the game, beyond what you
may do or have done as a player.
NOTE: If you are now, or have any idea you would like
to be, a tennis official, and your first three reasons do
include at least two of the above—forget it!
